According to TMZ.com, the reason Paula Abdul left American Idol is because she wanted more than the $3 million a year she was already pulling down!
I still can't believe they paid that heiffer $3 million to sit at a table and look stupid! No wonder RHOA's Kandi Burrus has started a campaign blitz to throw her name into the ring as the new judge. I'm sure AI isn't even thinking about Kandi, but her PR still sent out a press release as if AI has already come knocking on Kandi's door!
If you read between the lines in the press release, it's obvious that Kandi is dying to get that gig but AI isn't answering her calls. Unfortunately for Kandi, AI already has their one token black judge.
From a press release:
Rumors are starting to fly fresh off the press this morning that one of the stars of the Real Housewives of Atlanta,the Grammy Award Winning Singer/Songwriter, Kandi Burruss, may be a name in contention for a spot as a the new judge on the popular show which premieres in January.
Though no word has been confirmed as to if the producers will continue with a judging panel of three or add Burruss, it sure would make a very even pairing for television. "
